The ESO-EONS Masterclass 2018 gave 30 cancer nurses from across 18 countries in Europe the opportunity to learn the most up-to-date information about cancer treatment and management of side effects. They were also able to practice their communication skills, present their case studies, interact with colleagues and make new friends.

Masterclass Co-chair Erik van Muilekom said: “It’s amazing that after five days of intense training everybody had the feeling that they had learned so much and that participating in this Masterclass was the best choice they had ever made.”

Some statements from participants:

  • Since I returned to work I feel more inspired and motivated and in some ways more informed and secure of my knowledge and skills
  • It makes me even more proud to be an cancer nurse
  • We do not always realise the impact we have on our patients and relatives

Erik added: “As faculty, we can look back on some very inspiring days, we have tried to offer a complete programme where the participants could get inspiration for their daily practice and career. Reading their responses, I think we can say that we have succeeded.”

Planning for next year’s ESO-EONS Masterclass has already started – the date will be from 23-28 March 2019.
